# Two positive integers are 3 units apart on a number line. Their product is 108. Which equation can be used to solve for m, the greater integer?

m(m - 3) = 108

m(m + 3) = 108

(m + 3)(m - 3) = 108

(m - 12)(m - 9) = 108

**Solution:**

An integer is a number with no decimal or fractional part, from the set of negative and positive numbers, including zero.

Examples of integers are: -5, 0, 1, 5, 8, 97, and 3,043.

Consider an integer as m

It is given that two positive integers are 3 units apart on a number line

We can write it as

m - 3

Their product is 108

m(m - 3) = 108

Therefore, the equation which can be used to solve for m is m(m - 3) = 108.

## Two positive integers are 3 units apart on a number line. Their product is 108. Which equation can be used to solve for m, the greater integer?

**Summary:**

Two positive integers are 3 units apart on a number line. Their product is 108. The equation which can be used to solve for m, the greater integer is m(m - 3) = 108.
